Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Herndon are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

In the search for a new companion, consider starting at a local animal shelter like The Feline Foundation Of Greater Washington Inc, where Callie the cat is waiting patiently. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Joyful Jen, a Great Pyrenees mix up for adoption. If cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
